An Arizona couple will have to pay Nintendo over $12 million for running websites that offered free downloads of classic video games





Nintendo (thank you)

  • Nintendo of America was recently awarded a $12.23 million dollar judgement in federal court against a married Arizona couple accused of copyright infringement.
  • Jacob and Cristian Mathias allegedly acknowledged they operated websites that distributed free, unofficial copies of Nintendo video games along with software that emulates Nintendo consoles.
  • The websites at the center of the lawsuit, LoveROMs.com and LoveRETRO.co, offered free games to more than 17 million visitors per month.
  • The pair reportedly agreed to the judgement rather than face a lengthy court battle and even more potential damages owed to Nintendo.
